Set Up a New S19 to Start Bitcoin Mining

You must inspect the new miner and be aware of the appropriate safety measures before using a new S19. The procedures for configuring your new S19 are listed below.

1. Before Using

  • Inspect the new miner

1. Once you receive your miner package, visually examine the box. Hunt for indications of damage. Before opening the package and inspecting the miner, take pictures of the condition of the package if it is damaged. Make a quick call to customer support if the miner is also damaged.

2. Check the miner for cosmetic blemishes. Examine the miner’s corners and look for dents and cracks. Watch out for damaged cables and fan blades. Please get in touch with customer support right away if you found any damage or defects.

3. Check the heat sinks for the miner. Checking for any loose heat sinks from the front and back fans of the miner. If you discover any loose heat sinks, get in touch with customer support right away.

  • Know the precautions for the use

1) PoE is not supported.

2) The use of a router or switch only supports Ethernet network connections.

3) Use the miner in a climate with temperatures between -5 and +35 °C.

4) Keep the miner’s surrounding humidity below 65%

5) To avoid corrosion and/or heat buildup, keep the miner clean and free of catkins.

6) Chrome and Firefox are the supported browsers.

7) It is necessary to plug in the power connector and PSU cord firmly.

2. Installation

The first step is to connect a PSU (Power Supply Unit) to your Use specialized PSUs, such as those designed for servers or just for Bitcoin mining, such as S19 Pro. Connect all of your power supply’s power cables to the power headers on the top side of the miner. The controller only needs one cable, and the other two are for the hash boards.

Next, connect an Ethernet cable to your miner and the other end to a router or switch device. The miner will start up after you turn on your PSU.

Go on a computer or mobile device that is part of the same network as the miner next. You will need to enter in the miner’s IP address. Since most miners now come with DHCP enabled you do not have to manually set the IP address, you just need to look at the IP table on your router or use a scanning tool. Click the IP Report button (above) on the controller board. You should be able to find it by holding it down until it beeps (which should take about 5 seconds).

You can look up the IP address of every device on your network using a scanning tool like AngryIP.

After getting your miner’s IP address, you are ready for Configuration.

3. Setting Up the Server

To set up the server

Microsoft Windows is the only operating system that can open the file

  1. Download from here and run the software.
  2. Extract the file. The DHCP network protocol, which is the standard, automatically distributes IP addresses.
  3. Right-click”IPReporter.exe” and run it as Administrator.
  4. Select one of the following options:
    • Farm servers can be marked with the appropriate symbols: shelf, step, and position.
